I Sleep, I Dream, Without a Physical Movement

By N.H.



ascend up into the atmosphere of wisdom

while the radiation of its light causes us to unfold into

our perfection as a caterpillar unfold from its incubation period

into a butterfly so yes it is we who

can also fly above and leave our rambunctious ways

to pass away.


            I stand behind the podium uplifting the minds of the benighted, speaking righteousness, putting a smile on those who are depressed, motivating the

fools to think wisely.  Yes it is possible so let’s not

become a failure, instead a triumph.


We dwell in peace among each other, we sing, dance,

and love one another as a family, we all have a heart that is huge, huge enough to keep everyone of

us afloat just like the constellation that float among us at night, we are the inspiration out of own

generation, the ineluctable light that emanates the

world to its fullest creation and the torchbearer of

civilization so yes it is we who can make this dream

come true and be what we are created to be.

Over The Years

Over the years
I’ve learned about the people
Who fought.
The people who weren’t people,
But property to be sold and bought.
Over the years
I learned about the people
who cried.

Over the years
I’ve thought about the things
I Seen
You’ll have to live in my shoes
to see what I mean
Over the years
I’ve thought about the things
I’ve done
laughing and joking like everything
Was fun

I often think about the time I wasted
Instead of getting high
I could’ve gotten an education
Out of all the battles I fought
I was fighting for nothing
but as the old saying goes
you’ll fall for anything if
You don’t stand for something.


Living my life for the wrong reason
Tryna get it every season
Doing what it takes to stay eating
But hustling for the wrong reasons

Being ignorant to the fact
You can get it without selling crack
Feeling trapped because I am black
Now I can’t get this time back

It was a hard lesson learned
That money has a million ways to be earned
If you sit and wait your turn
Life lessons will be learned
